Hi Night Owl. Zenith Engineering marinise Isuzu diesels here in Brisbane, Oz, and advise that the fine for a 35 hp is $15k ozdolls and the 53hp is $16k, both with a full VDO panel and wiring harness. A 40hp marinised Kubota from either Nanni or Wichard Marine here in Oz runs to around $14-$15k
A base Kubota industrial 46hp engine here is $6.5k; ZF box around $2.5k; Orca marinising kit around $2.5k and Murphy instrumentation $900 = about $12.5k if I do the work myself.
It's not a lot compared to the overall value of the ship, but it involves a bit of saving for the skipper. Cheers!
